About New Sun Rising

We are champions for citizens driven by purpose, shapers of social innovation and catalysts of impact. A growing network of impactivists committed to generating opportunity and change.

New Sun Rising is an organization striving to find and support fresh, creative solutions to social problems that are more effective, efficient and sustainable than what currently exists. We build programs and new models to progress your concept from idea to impact, whether we are your fiscal sponsor, your mentor or your community connector.

This process of social innovation is made possible by inspired visionaries, who dream of what’s possible and are passionate about making it happen. The collective output of these solutions delivers a positive effect on the societal, environmental, and cultural fabric of your community.

New Sun Rising believes that catalyzing social impact can activate your authentic vision and potential. We’re building an engaged, diverse, and cooperative ecosystem which results in solutions that improve your community… and that can improve communities around the world.
